Turkeys in the snow

After more than two feet of snow from Winter Storm Juno Monday night through early Wednesday, then 3 or 4 more inches yesterday (Friday), I spotted a flock of wild turkeys in someone’s plowed driveway on Atlantic Ave. in North Hampton.

Where do they go, what do they eat, how do they get around in deep snow?

I submitted a report to the NH Fish and Game Winter Turkey Flock Survey.

This year’s New Hampshire winter wild turkey flock survey runs from January 1 through March 31. We need you to report flocks you see! Your observations will help Fish and Game biologists assess the impact of winter weather on our turkey population. Thank you for volunteering to help in this effort as a “citizen scientist.”
